If i had to describe this cruise in one word i would say "WOW" This was our first time cruising and we had no idea that it would be this fun. There were 20 of us that went...all family...from ages 2 to 50. As soon as we walked in the ship...we were all amazed by how clean and nice the place looked. It looked like the inside of a mall...But each section had different things going on. The staff were the most friendliest people and the service was unbelievable. The food was our favorite part. There were just too many varieties and they were all delicious. The pool area always had live music and bbqs....and there were always some kinda activity by the pool...or on the ship. They had this ice sculpture show..that was kool and many many more. There was always something to do.....Great games for kids and adults. They had food available on the ship 24-7...which was really good. The club on the 8th floor (forgot the name, but theres only one there) was Amazing. Everyone should go see the comedy show they play before the club starts...i was laughing the whole time. It was hilarious. haha. The music at the club was really good too. Three straight days of partying and eating and still all of us wished the trip was longer. Overall the trip was a great family vacation for us. We just wished it would of been a couple of days longer. We all are definately planning to come back on the cruise..but this time looking forward to a longer cruise.

Pros: The food and the staff

Cons: I loved everying about it.
